An academic library with a great Facebook site

Weill Cornell Medical College Library have a great Facebook page with plenty of useful newsy updates. They also feature a quiz to find out what sort of library user you are – and you then get suggestions for what appeals to your “type” – and more importantly suggestions for other services you might like to use. It’s a nifty way of using the quiz application we see so often on Facebook to promote library services. I like the way they allow library users to use Facebook to RSVP to workshops and classes too.

They also have some great little videos – this  one demonstrates how much a student can save by using online resources, and the link below it goes to a video promoting Google Scholar.

I LOVE their strapline “Start with us” which I could see being combined with all manner of promotional messages “want to save time searching … start with us” etc etc.
